I have an upcoming video going over what I am self hosting, so I figure it would be fun to hear what other people are self hosting in their homeLabs! Also let me know if anyone wants a deeper write up on any of theses.
Currently located in @katie’s office! Not too loud!
Overall I mostly use a new VM for every single service that I want to self host. This allows me to really limit downtime / monitor every single item individually. Plus it makes IPv4 networking pretty easy!
The downside of this setup is ram usage! But thankfully both my hosts have 128 gigs of ram / 48 gigs which is more than enough. Each service is normally a ubuntu server 20.04.2 (LTS) VM, so they only need 512 megabytes of ram min (I normally start with 1 gig)
|Plex||Share ripped DVD’s on my LAN + really great for music (closed source software)|
|Gitea||Really lightweight git client with a web interface, used for version controlling all of my code / scripts|
|MariaDB||SQL database server that is a drop in replacement of MySQL (make sure to backup)|
|phpMyAdmin||Great web interface for my MariaDB server. Lets you easily add users / tables, without typing any SQL|
|NextCloud||Used as a google drive / suite replacement. I personally do not use this a ton, though I am planning on using this to replace Synology Drive for sharing data to clients|
|bind||bind is a DNS server that can run on any linux box. I created a subdomain
|homebridge||home bridge allows you to take pretty much any smart home device, and bring it into the Apple HomeKit ecosystem.|
|Xen Orchestra||Xen Orchestra is a phenomenal interface for managing XCP-NG virtual machines. It has some of the best backup software out there for VMs too!|
|Zabbix||Zabbix is a crucial part of how I manage / monitor, well everything and anything! I use it to monitor my own services, as well as client NAS units|
|Synology||Can’t forget this! Synology has tons and tons of stuff that you really can use. I probably will do a similar post over there just going over Synology services!|
|OpenVPN||I have created an OpenVPN server that allows client Sinology’s to connect to a VLAN for both monitoring and backups, without having any ports open to the internet|
(just going to include the software)
|NAS||TrueNAS Scale||Used for both bulk file storage, and my fast video editing NAS (25GbE)|
|NAS||Synology||Used for tons of stuff, Synology Photos, Synology Drive, backing everything up, you name it, it does it|
|VM Host||XCP-NG||Used as the hypervisor for all of my virtual machines, managed by Xen Orchestra|
|Router||UDM-Pro||Using a UDM pro for my router, right not its just easy and has enough features that it does everything I need, without having too much customization to get me in trouble|
I am sure I missed something here! This will be updated as I add more things!
